I have little of serious interest to share on this Boxing Day - but it's
still my favorite day of the year. . . . . . . . .because I only do what
I want to do. It's like my annual day off!
Needless to say, I'm not into giving out traditional gift 'boxes' on this special
day to the servants. This is no Downton Abbey. . . . . . .however love this box
idea. Bakery boxes used to store freezer-bound pastries. If I can ever stop
making and bagging gallons of soup for the freezer, and have some extra
space, I will remember this idea.
Today, a very cold early morning, I filled my bird feeders and melted the
water in the birdbaths - but have yet to see cockatoos arrive!
Yesterday I watched The Queen's Speech - she looked lovely
as always - I realized this is the 64th time I've listened to her
speaking from her desk at Buckingham Palace on Christmas Day.
Always made to sit quietly after Christmas dinner and listen/later
watch, The Queen.
Years fly by too fast!
Now I look forward to Season 2 of Victoria on US television
screens, coming soon.
Above is my lovely ring showing the young Queen Victoria - given
to my late mother by Sir Winston Churchill's daughter during WW2
when they were friends in the Royal Air Force.
Speaking of which, have you seen the new Churchill movie,
The Darkest Hour? We plan to go this week, I can hardly wait.
. . . . . . and this!
Well we all have black pants - I have a wardrobe full - even if not
glitzy like these.
But the blouse, how beautiful is that for the holidays. . . . . .
. . . . . . or even moreso, for me personally, this gorgeous red velvet
jacket, love jackets so much.
So this is a smidgen of the somewhat mediocre hodgepodge - or perhaps
a cheery glass of sherry talking - of what's on my mind today.
Hope you are enjoying Boxing Day too.
